Herb Gross defines inverse functions using the same ideas as in Lesson 17 on functions: Start with input x, apply function f, find the output y. Then use y as the input into a new program, the inverse program, which determines a new output which is the SAME as the original input, x. In other words, the inverse function undoes what the original function has done to the x. Herb supplies many familiar examples, including graphs, so that the new language becomes clear.

Herb Gross introduces the topic of Systems of Equations in which there are two equations each of which has two variables. He shows how to solve such a system; i.e., find the value of each of the variables such that both equations are true simultaneously. Sometimes it is not possible to solve a system - either the equations are contradictory or do not admit a unique solution. Herb shows several examples of solutions techniques.

Functions are defined as the program in a process that takes an input, follows the program (rules) and produces an output. In this context, arithmetic is likened to knowing the input and program and determining the output; algebra is compared to knowing the output and the program and determining the input; finally Analytic Geometry is comparable to determining the function when you know the...

Herb Gross explains more about solving systems of linear equations. First, he describes how to change a system that may appear difficult because of the coefficients of the variables into a system that is easier to manipulate using strategies we are familiar with. The idea of using strategies we already know to solve a new kind of problem is demonstrated again in solving a system of 3 linear equations in 3 variables. Have a look at www.adjectivenounmath.com.
